I would like to own a few of these, and I understand the HUBBLE disc is an excellent 3-D experience, but would also appreciate feedback on other worthwhile titles.

I picked up Born To Be Wild and Under The Sea 3D for under $20 at Best Buy. Got Deep Sea 3d for $10 from a pawnshop and a used To The Arctic from FYE at about $10.00. Would have paid twice that. Even though the running times are short (due to Imax film limitations), they are all essential. See the Top releases list for a confirmation about Under The Sea...a shot in there of a fish is rated the best pop out by many.

I have Hubble 3D and Space Station 3D -- I remember being more impressed with the Hubble disc, but I haven't seen either more than once.

Just finished watching Creature from the Black lagoon 3D after positive reviews here. Really liked it. 3D was very good definitely worth the buying!

Keep an eye on your local Costco. I got Under the Sea for $12.50, and they had other IMAX 3D titles as well.
